The desk of Savannah J

I have recently developed unexplained joint pain and for a writer, that is a problem. It all started after my doctor prescribed a certain Cholesterol medicine for me. Well, one of the side effects of the medication is, joint and muscle pain; on a scale of 1 to 10 mine was an 8.
After a couple of visits with my doctors physician's assistant, (P. A.) it was suggested that I have blood work sent for testing. She tested me the first time for Rheumatoid Arthritis, which came back negative but a test which can indicate, Lupus showed positive. Upon my return for yet more blood work, I told her, "I do not have Lupus! This pain is a direct result of the Cholesterol medication." Well, the P. A. insisted that I could not be having aches and pains from the medicine because it was long out of my system and it had to be something else. "Okay, but it ain't Lupus," I said to myself.
I left the office standing on my faith and belief in God that He is still in the healing business. I stood on Isaiah 53:5 which says "By His wounds you are healed." (NIV) I asked Bible believing and loving family and friends to agree with me in prayer. Today, I received the report in the mail with the final results of my tests. The blood work was negative for Lupus! Look at God! He is ever faithful!
Perhaps there is something you are believing God for; perhaps you've been standing for a while. I say to you, never, ever give up! Eh-vah! God still answers prayers. Find scripture which confirms your blessing and stand and I promise you one day soon you too will be shouting, "Look at God!"
Until we meet again,
